Mansur Gavriel

MG

i’m not sure when i first noticed Mansur Gavriel. it could have been when Garance Doré blogged about their beautiful bucket bag, or it might have been upon seeing the bright pops of blue and yellow peeking out of their gorgeous totes that were being pinned relentlessly by women like myself, suddenly smitten. nevertheless, the […]
